Misys Offers Open Source Information for Better Industry Connectivity

October 25, 2007 – Misys plc, a global application software and services company, said it will make the Misys Connect healthcare solution available to the open source development community to help establishing open standards in healthcare.

Misys Open Source Solutions, a division of Misys plc, was established to create and drive innovation in the marketplace, using open source to move toward open standards.

Today the availability and sharing of patient information is a fragmented and labor-intensive, paper-based process. Manual processes can cause delays in treatment, increased costs and errors. Automating the process and using open standards for interoperability is a major step forward and a precursor to truly connected healthcare communities, the company said.

“Misys is showing remarkable leadership with their commitment to connecting healthcare communities across America,” said Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and founder of the Center for Health Transformation. “Moving towards open standards is a vital step in creating a modernized, interconnected system that saves lives and saves money for all Americans – and Misys’ bold leadership in using open source is a significant step to realize that future.”

Misys Open Source Solutions is also said it joined the Eclipse Foundation, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to open source development. Misys will work with the foundation to advance the development of their open healthcare framework (OHF) project, formed for the purpose of expediting healthcare information technology. Misys said it will also explore contributions to the Eclipse community to enable the connection of key medical information throughout the entire healthcare continuum, making it accessible by care providers to increase the quality of care and decrease its cost at the same time.
